National Advisory Board Member Dr. R. Pepper Murray Recognized For Unusual Talent–Cow Chip Throwing

The Huntsman School of Business values R. Pepper Murray for his many contributions as a member of its National Advisory Board. The Salt Lake Tribune recognized him last July for a different reason.

A story featuring his volunteer work with the Days of ’47 said that Dr. Murray was the USU Men’s cow-chip throwing champion. (He said he came within six feet of setting a new world record.) The story also focused on the fact that he is the co-medical director of the Justin Sports Medicine Team, an organization that offers medical care to rodeo athletes at more than 150 events across the country.
